I just wanted to send you an email in regard to your lip balm.  I do not use lip balm as a general rule as I find it dries my lips even more, however, I did receive your lip balm as a stocking stuffer last year but never used it.  Several months ago the skin around my thumbs cracked, as I am sure it does for many people, and I did not have any hand cream available, I did however have your lip balm so I thought why not give it a try, if it is supposed to be good for the lips what about dry skin.  That night I put the lip balm around my thumb where the cracks were then put a band-aid on, the next morning the crack was all but gone.  To me this “lip balm” is a great healing stick.  I just thought I would let you know how good your “lip balm” is for uses other than the lips. I have tried the hand cream but I like using the lip balm for around my nails. – Susan
